A 79-year-old man from Karachi, who has been trying for the past two and a half years to address the demands and concessions made by Prime Minister Imran Khan as Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly from 2013 to 2018. Let me gather information. The Sindh High Court (SHC) moved to get the required information.
Petitioner Sher Muhammad Chishti, through his lawyer, told the court that he has been writing to the Speaker of the National Assembly since October 2, 2018 to provide information about the privileges and privileges granted by the previous rulers.
He said that this information is available, but he is not being provided details of benefits and benefits from Prime Minister Imran Khan from 2013 to 2018. He said that he wanted to know how many sessions of the National Assembly were held from 2013 to 2018, how Imran Khan participated in many sessions, how much salary and requirements and benefits he was given and how much money he got in the name of allowance.
The petitioner says that he needs this information from month to month. He says he has been writing letters to the Speaker of the National Assembly and the Chief Information Officer since 2018 seeking this information, but to no avail. He said that he was entitled to this information under the Information Freedom of Information Ordinance, but the government agencies responsible for providing this information did not provide him with the required information.
The petitioner asked the court to pay him Rs. 5,000,000 as he wasted a lot of time in the process. In response, the court said it should have filed a damages suit for that purpose. Upon this, the petitioner realized his technical error and withdrew his complaint.
